Podcast: Home Sales, Rates & Housing Starts

Today’s podcast goes over the recent existing-home sales data, housing starts, and mortgage rates. The savagely unhealthy housing market continues with home price growth running at 14.8% year over year.

Thank you all for those who attended the Cocktails with Logan event in New York. It was a great time, and I have received many good questions about the state of the housing market.

Here is a link to that event for those who missed the recent economic conference on HousingWire. We had a very talented panel join me in talking about the state of the U.S. housing market. Please feel free to use my LoganVIP50 code to join HW plus and access all these events and my articles.
